Hello everyone!! Sorry for having been a bit quiet, we were visiting family. It is Monday and time for a new Simon Says Stamp Monday Challenge. This week we are having a favourite theme of mine as a challenge - distress. Tim Holtz Distress range of products make their way onto almost every project of mine, and I of course also love to distress. Speaking of that, I had a great day yesterday at a full-day class taught by Tim Holtz and Paula Cheney. It was so much fun to meet them for the first time.
die cut from manila cardstock and I stamped three transportation images on them with Archival Jet Black Ink. They were stamped a second time on a post-it note and cut out for a mask. I masked the images and inked the cards with Distress Inks, using an ink-blending tool. The sea and the sky were inked blue, the rest in shades of brown. I also splattered some water on the backgrounds, for more texture.
Distress Markers for a great multi-colour effect. Huff on the stamp to before stamping and you'll get a great impression. I really like using the Distress Markers in this way. The transportation images were coloured with Distress Ink, using a craft nib.
Vintage Market XL die, inked them with Antique Linen, coated with Glossy Accents and covered with Antique Linen Distress Glitter. The remainder of the word was completed with Label Letter stickers.
I hope you will join us this week in our fun distress challenge, and as always, one random participant wins a $50 gift voucher from Simon Says Stamp.
Thank you for stopping by!!
